Abstract

A plurality of pre-identified graphic symbolic expressions are provided (31). Using only a portion of a particular graphic symbolic expression as entered (32) by a user, one can then disambiguate amongst the plurality of pre-identified graphic symbolic expressions to select (33) one of the expressions as most likely correlating to the intended complete expression entry. In a preferred embodiment, the pre-identified graphic symbolic expressions can include both expressions comprising characters and expressions comprising characters and spaces.
